I think we still need some depth at wide receiver. We have Baldwin, Bowe, Chambers, and McCluster, who may or may not be used as a slot guy this year. I think we need 2 more receivers, and while Verran Tucker was ok, there are some rookies that could step in and challenge for playing time:
Darvin Adams - Tall (6'3", 185) receiver who was the #1 option for Cam Newton. Was mostly a deep threat in college and doesn't seem to have the speed (4.56 40) to be the same in the pros. However, is this a case of game speed vs. shorts speed?
Tori Gurley - Big (6'4", 225), physical wide receiver with decent speed (4.53 40). Didn't have a single drop last year. Good with jump balls, raw route runner.
Jeff Maehl - Thin receiver (6'0", 175) but a great route runner with good hands. An underdog to be sure, his size and speed (4.65 40) will be challenges. He did, however, set a record for the 3 cone drill at the combine, showing his natural route running ability. I think the biggest question is - can he survive in the NFL as a slot guy with that slight of a frame?
Dane Sanzenbacher - Average size (5'11") with decent speed (4.52 40) and good hands. Team leader with high football IQ and instincts. Not much of a leaper, but will make a solid possession receiver somewhere.
Others after the jump:
Mark Herzlich, OLB: Everybody's favorite. A cancer survivor who would have been a top-10 pick had he not endured cancer and the recovery associated with it. A tough, intelligent player who lives and breathes football. Obviously, a leader. As much as it pains me to say this, Herzlich wasn't the player he used to be last year, most would assume due to the effort it took to rebound from his illness. I sincerely hopes he gets a chance somewhere and succeeds. I would love it to be in KC, but who knows...
Alex Linnenkohl, C: I know, we already drafted a center, and this guy would be a project. A smart, tough player with limited athleticism, he could provide some depth if allowed some time to learn.
Adrian Moten, OLB: Small for the linebacker position (6'2", 235) but very fast (4.53 40). He seems to lack the quick reactions needs to be a good linebacker in the pros, but seems custom built for special teams and could work as a backup.
Deunta Williams, S/CB: Would have gone in the middle rounds if he was given a clean bill of health. A playmaker at safety, possesses good instincts and physical makeup (6'1", 215, 4.5 40). If he makes it back from a broken leg, someone will give him a chance.
